The HTC Tiara was leaked about two months ago. It is said to pack a 4.3 inch WVGA SLCD2 display, 1 GB of RAM, 8 MP rear camera, 8 GB of internal storage, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core chipset, 1800 mAh rated battery and Windows Phone 8 GDR2. Tiara is scheduled for a may reveal.
- Nokia Lumia 928/925
- Nokia Lumia EOS
Nokia's Lumia 928 is on the brink of release (May 14th to be exact), with all the leaks surrounding the device launch all but officially confirming it's existence.
